Trainer Jason Servis, who trains Firenze Fire and was looking forward to running in the Jerome Stakes on Monday at Aqueduct — on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. Unfortunately, that race was cancelled due to weather concerns. Going in, Servis said

After a nearly two-month break, the Jason Servis trainee will make his Aqueduct debut.

“He’s being doing OK, so we’ll see what happens,” Servis said. “I’m not looking for anything particular except a good race.”

Heading into the race, I thought he might be up against it,” said Servis. “It looked like there was a speed bias for most of the day on the track. He didn’t have the easiest of trips; he didn’t break on top and had to deal with some traffic, but I’m not going to knock the ride. Manny got the job done. It’s nice when things work it. They don’t usually, but when they do, it’s nice.”
